Quirky Men Challenge!

Oh no! Look at the time!! It's nearly tomorrow! Oh well, never mind! (Thank goodness blogger is behind!) Here is my DT Card for The Quirky Forum Challenge. Did you guess? Course you did!
“Masculine Theme”
This card went off to my Uncle Frank. Hope he liked it! What did I use? Ah, you'll be glad to know all the papers were freebies! The little scissor brad is by Woodware and so are the screw brads. The other little button ladder, screw driver and paint pot I bought from a market some time ago and of course the clear stamped image is from the Bubble and Squeak range, but I've forgotten which one this is, as I'm still dog sitting! (I'll add it in later) He's been coloured with ProMaker pens and stamped onto a rectangle cut using my Nestabilites (and my Bigshot) YouTube Video for colouring with ProMakers Here
The spanner paper is from MadAboutCards. Look out for their other papers if you haven't all ready found them (I know all you oldies will have them but some of you newbies might not!) The brown checked or gingham paper you should have if you've found my links before. Click here for the website and here for the pastel gingham papers (link on my side bar too) and HERE for the dark gingham papers. And the font??Oh pooh I can't remember what that was... It's times like this, when I wish I didn't have sooo many fonts! But you've gotta have 'em! haven't you!
I'll pop back later and let you know! (Meanwhile, there's a link on my side bar to some freebie hand written type fonts!) I've found's one I used not long ago, so you should have it. It's called Big Log and you'll find the free download HERE
What else? I coloured the little bear with my ProMakers, (you've said that!) and everything was fixed on either with 3D foam pads, photo or silicon glue! Back tomorrow...I mean later today. (Or maybe not!) Oh and we haven't a new follower, just me!! I found out I can email people easier if I followed myself...well, I usually meet myself getting up most days anyway! Thanks for stopping by!
